The Effect of Β 1-and Β 2-adrenergic Stimulation on Energy Expenditure , Substrate Oxidation and Ucp 3 Expression in Human Skeletal Muscle

In humans, β-adrenergic stimulation increases energy and fat metabolism. In case of β1stimulation, this is fuelled by an increased lipolysis. We examined the effect of β2-adrenergic stimulation, with and without a blocker of lipolysis, on thermogenesis and substrate oxidation. Furthermore, the effect of β1and β2-adrenergic stimulation on UCP3 mRNA… (More)
